Monday to Friday's "Stop Child Abuse Now" (SCAN) feature trauma informed HOSTs and Co-hosts and respected child abuse prevention, intervention and recovery advocates. They're all volunteers members of the National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse (NAASCA), a 501(c)3. Founded in 2009, NAASCA.org was originally a grassroots effort. It was launched based on our founder Bill Murray's personal life experienced. Bill wrote, "Very few adults escape years of severe childhood sexual abuse, pre-pubescent X-rated photography, sex trafficking, and a two week long kidnapping." He continued. "But I have, and for some 35 years I've been in recovery from its devastating effects." After years of operating as a grassroots effort, NAASCA became a public charity in 2015 .. a 501(c)3 .. but we receive no grants or outside support, and belong to no other organization. There are no dues or fees. Our MISSION is entirely self-sustaining through the volunteer contributions of our members. The single purpose is to address issues related to childhood abuse and trauma including sexual assault, violent or physical abuse, emotional traumas and neglect from two specific perspectives: 1) educating the public, and 2) offering hope for healing and services to adult survivors. There are now nearly 3000 BlogTalkRadio shows, podcasts in the ever-growing library. Join us five-nights-a-week (Mon to Fri), at 8pm EST (so 7pm CEN, 6pm MTN, 5pm PAC) for solution-oriented discussions about the many issues of child abuse and trauma. The shows always include panel discussions and call-in participation.

Upcoming Broadcasts

Tonight's special guest is Carissa Alexandra Daniel from Seattle, Washington, a child abuse survivor. Raised in a home filled with domestic violence, her escapes were reading and music. At the age of eleven she began a solo career as a singer, guitar player and songwriter. She is also a classically trained lyric soprano, and has acted in music theatre as well. It was after a music rehearsal that she was stalked and then overpowered by a criminal who held her prisoner for hours, raping and assaulting her. Eventually he left, and she survived the attack, unlike 3 of his other victims, who he brutally murdered in cold blood. Eventually he was executed for his crimes. Prior to the assault, she was on the verge of creating a successful career in Contemporary Christian music. A few months later, she was left disabled after a nearly-fatal car crash. She jokes that when those in the know in the music business told her it was just a matter of time till she had a hit, she had no idea it would come from a pickup hitting her at 45 miles an hour, shoving her little mustang forward and sideways into oncoming traffic. Eventually she started over and thought she would build a life, even if it wasn't the one she'd dreamed of, graduated from broadcast school and began working in radio. She met someone, but the man of her dreams was actually the creator of nightmares as she became the victim of domestic violence. When her miracle daughter was 3, they went underground after he threatened her life, and eventually they moved to a place where they knew no one. Wanting to help others, she was certified as a victim advocate, but because of disabilities, was unable to work in shelter. Because her ex would periodically go looking for them and harass them, she got online seeking support, and began to heal.
